Not often that you find someone working in financial services with a theatre degree. At one time I worked as an actress and within the realms of arts education, creating and delivering high quality educational workshops and programmes, whilst also training actors to perform them. I still work with theatre companies to deliver performance based workshops and educational packs.
However, in the years before I worked in the corporate sector. With names such as GE Corporate, Imperial College and London 2012 under my belt, I started my own award-winning business Blue Arrow Accounting (t/a AB Bookkeeping), and working with Ortus Finance, commercial lending.
Had my acting experience enhanced my corporate work? Immensely. I now talk at conferences across the U.K. and work with a wide range of businesses. My performance background has been an asset in finance.
I now work with others in the professional field to help them speak with impact.
Outside of work, you can find me walking in the Sussex countryside with my two dogs, husband and son.
